Great beer can be brewed in small places


Dolphin Brewery is a small batch brewery operating in a garage, just outside Reading. We might be limited in size, but we’re certainly not limited in our passion for making
top-quality craft beers. We make seasonal and one-off releases in a range of different styles, from sours, to stouts, and most things in between.   


Being small allows us ultimate control. We are hands-on throughout each step of the brewing process; from designing the recipe to bottling each beer, every batch is carefully crafted with passion and care.




We only release beers that we are proud of, enjoy drinking ourselves, and want to share with fellow beer lovers. Our approach is to carefully refine our recipes on our test kit until we’re happy that we have a winner, at which point we’ll scale up to our larger (not that large) one-barrel production kit.

We produce a range of different beers inspired by our favourite beer styles. Most beers are one-offs, but if you have a particular favourite that you’d like to see us brew again, let us know and we’ll see what we can do
